NICK EVANS TAKES ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OFFICE AT UNIVERSITY OF LOUISVILLE POSITION.
Nick Evans is moving on from his position with Louisville Athletics as an assistant sports information director for women's basketball, women's soccer and lacrosse to a new position with the University...where he'll now be an associate director of communications for the Development office.
Nick, a Louisville native, came to the University of Louisville in August of 2017 from Morehead State University, where he was the sports information director.
Although we are very happy to see Nick grow and prosper within the University of Louisville, it is with sad regret that we see him leave the Athletic Department, For us, Nick was the "go to" guy anytime we had a question about WBB, WSOC or LAX and he was always eager to set us up with interviews with coaches, staff, players and trainers for his three programs.
I spent a lot of hours in the press boxes for Lacrosse and Women's Soccer with Nick over the past five years and also at the KFC YUM! Center covering women's basketball. He always made sure I was doing OK, had everything I needed and got the Cardinal Couple staff and I interviews, post game press conference information , as well as insights and reports on whoever the Cards were playing.
I knew of Nick before he ever got to Louisville or Morehead through his work with the Louisville Bats. I also know his dad back from the days when I would hire him for Christmas Party dance music and frivolity at Sportsmen Supper Club.
He was never too busy to spend a few minutes with you in his office in the Student Athletic Center building or pre or post game at a UofL sporting event.
Like the other S.I.D.'s his job and responsibilities went through a lot of changes in the COVID period, when attendance was limited, media was masked, spaced and moved to "safe" areas of coverage and tele-conferences were the way post game remarks and comments were handled.
Sonja was fond of Nick also, he grew up right down the street from where Sonja's mom lived and Sonja grew up.
Communications and development are two areas he's always excelled at, so I have no doubt he'll excel in his new position. It'll be hard to replace him and what he did, but, as the saying goes: "You can't keep a good man down." .and Nick is one of the best.
I hope to see my friend around campus still and at sporting events...as a fan...and will always be grateful for all he did to aid and assist us knuckleheads here at Cardinal Couple in reporting about the joy and excitement of UofL women's sports.
We won't say "Goodbye" to Nick, just "see ya further on down the road"...and a big thanks for what he did as a member of the sports information department and us at Cardinal Couple.
